    Simply the best ambient album in existence. Enormously powerful and returning to it is always a satisfying experience (which is over all too soon).

    Even after over 25 years and listening to literally thousands of ambient albums - this one is still very very dear to me... Definitely one of the greatest albums of the genre ever recorded.

    Obviously Brian Eno was a huge influence, but I'm still convinced ambient would have never been the same without it.

    Beautiful work Steven Roach, with its simplicity musical leads me to reflect on the fundamental nature of the universe; the space and the time.

    Yeah, the remastered edition should've retained the original cover. It just fitted the album so well.

    I loved this the first time I heard it and I wasn't even a fan of ambient music at the time

    I used to cry to this piece when I was losing my dad to Alzheimer's. Quiet Friend sounds like something or somebody is slipping away, but then finishes in a mood of complete calm.
